Poland forward is set to leave Dortmund come the summer.
Both Chelsea and Manchester United look like missing out on in-demand Borussia Dortmund front man Robert Lewandowski at the end of the season after it emerged that Bayern Munich are now the favourites to sign the Poland international this summer, says the Daily Mirror.
Lewandowski, 24, is at present the most sought-after striker on the Continent, having recently netted a record-breaking four goals to help beat Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the Uefa Champions League.
Meanwhile, in this campaign as a whole the in-form attacker has found the back of the net on 23 occasions in just 27 Bundesliga contests, and 35 times as well in only 37 matches in all competitions, making him one of European football’s most in-form marksmen.
And, with Lewandowski’s contract at Dortmund expiring next year, his club are understood to want to sell him this summer as opposed to in 2014 when the player can leave on a free.
However, Chelsea and United now appear to have lost out to the Bavarian giants in the race to land Lewandowski.
